Aim of the action
Capacity building projects aim to support VET institutions and systems in driving socio-economic development. They will target third countries not associated to the Erasmus+ Programme.
The action will cover aims such as better aligning and closing the gaps between VET with market opportunities, supporting professional and learners’ training and development, and helping professionals to build curricula and reform.
Organisations should choose to focus on one or more of the following themes:
- work-based learning (for young people and/or adults)
- quality assurance mechanisms
- VET teachers/trainers professional development
- key competences, including entrepreneurship
- skills-matching in forward-looking economic sectors
- support to developing green and digital skills for the twin transition
